The Financing of Mental Health Services for Children and Adolescents. National Institute of Mental Health and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau Workshop (Bethesda, Maryland, February 24-25, 1988).
National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health, Washington, DC.
This collection consists of the technical papers presented at a federally sponsored workshop on financing of mental health services for children and adolescents. Individually, the papers reflect the fragmentation of the field--both the fragmented service delivery system and fragmented research on services and financing. Together, the papers form a critique of the present system and provide the outlines of how to remedy the problems that characterize the present system of care and how to create a coordinated system of care. Papers have the following titles and authors: "Comprehensive Health Care for Children and Adolescents: Implications for Financing Mental Health Services" (Julius B. Richmond); "Suffer the Children: The History of Financing Child Mental Health Services" (Mary Jane England); "Financing Children's Mental Health Services: Analytical Perspectives from Medicare Data for Psychiatric Hospitalization" (Marc P. Freiman); "Mental Health Care for Children and Adolescents in Health Maintenance Organizations" (Maureen Shadle and Jon B. Christianson); "Financing Child and Adolescent Inpatient Mental Health Services through Private Insurance" (Constance Horgan and Thomas McGuire); "An Analysis of Medicaid Coverage Policies Affecting Access to Children's Mental Health Services" (Harriet B. Fox); "National Special Education Programs as a Vehicle for Financing Mental Health Services for Children and Youth" (John A. Butler); "Diagnosis-Related Groups and Child Psychiatry: Determinants of Inpatient Resource Use Based on CHAMPUS Data" (Agnes Rupp); "Economic Aspects of Investments in Preventing Mental Disorders in Children and Adolescents" (Richard G. Frank); "The Impact of Mental Health Treatment on Use of Services by Children" (Barbara Starfield and Kelly Kelleher); "Health Care for Children with Autism: Utilization, Financing and Expenditures" (Arnold Birenbaum and Dorothy Guyot); "Family Economic Contribution to the Care of Children/Adolescents with Mental Health Problems" (Deborah D. Franks); "Assessing National Data Bases Related to Financing Mental Health Services for Children and Adolescents" (Margaret McManus); and "Workshop Summary: Financing Mental Health Care for Children and Adolescents: A Gestaltist View of Fragmented Research and Services" (Leonard Saxe and Theodore Cross).
